Aroma/Color/Taste: Rou Gui literally means cassia, relating to cinnamon.  As a whole Rou Gui’s have a fruity aroma and flavor that mixes well with the roast.  Rou Guis are drier and on the woodsier side of oolongs.  

This Horse Meat Rou Gui is very rich, thick, and flavorful.  It is meaty with a heavier roast.  It has a great nose, strong aroma and a pure, sweet, chocolate long lasting after taste.    Master Zhou charcoal bakes the tea at least 5 times till it comes alive.  It is cinnamon in color.   This is a beautiful meaty tea, with a lot of character, and a great long lasting finish.  This tea is delicious for many, many brews.  The flavor and aroma never quits.  You’ll totally enjoy it!

Location:  This Rou Gui comes from the inner circle upper mountain area of Wuyi Mountain on the Horse Head Cliff or also referred to as Horse Head Rock.  Wuyi Mountain is in the northwest province of Fujian in southeast China. 

Made by:  It was made by Tea Master Zhou from trees about 30 years old. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

Brews & Steeping:  Bring the water to a rolling boil.  Wait for the bubbling water to settle.  Pour off the first brew to open the leaves.  For first drink, infuse for 3 seconds, pour and enjoy.  This tea can make 10-15 infusions.  Increase steep time only slightly longer as you reach the final brews.  You'll know by the color and taste of the tea, when it has been exhausted.  We recommend using a small thick clay teapot and spring or filtered water.
